There’s a lovely old English myth that if someone who truely loved and trusted the werewolf called it by name that it would turn back to human.
Others include throwing their human clothes at it and it’d turn back but that’s a bit less romantic
In which Bucky is turned into a werewolf and goes missing(either because he runs away in shame/to protect Steve or because he gets kidnapped into a pack) and Steve has to find him. They’ve never spoken of their love, but Steve can’t just give him up for dead or crazy. So he goes on the ‘hunt’ for Bucky. Eventually he finds him. Bucky is half crazed and intent and on the hunt. Out for blood. Steve recognizes him(somehow. a scar? his eyes? he’s seen bucky’s were form before?) and calls out to him as Bucky-wolf is rushing towards him, jaws open and tongue wagging for a meal. “Bucky!” He doesn’t stop but he does falter midstride and Steve calls out his name again.
"Your name is James Buchanan Barnes! You’re my best friend."
And the Bucky wolf stops stock still, legs splayed and shaking, staring at Steve. “You won’t hurt me, Bucky. Please.” It starts slowly, in his eyes. They turn from the gold-yellow of a wolf back into blue, the hair on his body starts receeding and his paws turn back into hands, feet.
Finally there is no more wolf, just a shivering, shaking Bucky Barnes and Steve runs over to him. Bucky whimpers as he gets close but Steve keeps going until he’s kneeling besides his best friend, taking out a blanket and some clothes from the pack on his back. “Told you you’d never hurt me, jerk.”
Aiya Van Kooten everyone
When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
This is the best story of my life
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.
I just saw Jesse Eisenberg’s copy and I managed not to trip while walking past him, so yay me

You are gonna have people who are going to see the depth from which you approached a song. The fact that you put real emotions into it, and that that’s valuable, and that’s good, and that’s real. And then you’re gonna have people who are gonna say "Oh, you know, like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends…." - taylorswift
